Explain why each of the following statements is either true or false: a) The computer program gave me a p-value of .000, so I know that my theory has been verified. b) The computer program gave me a p-value of .02, so I know that I have found a very strong relationship. c) The computer program gave me a p-value of .06, so I know that this relationship is due to random chance. d) The computer program gave me a p-value of .50, so I know there is only a 50% chance of this relationship being systematic.

a) The computer program gave me a p-value of .000, so I know that my theory has been verified - False

b) The computer program gave me a p-value of .02, so I know that I have found a very strong relationship. - True

since p-value < alpha 0.05, there is association between the variables

c) The computer program gave me a p-value of .06, so I know that this relationship is due to random chance - True

since p-value > alpha 0.05, there is no association between the variables i.e. random chance

d) The computer program gave me a p-value of .50, so I know there is only a 50% chance of this relationship being systematic. - False
